[whatwg] Any plan for a TIMEOUT section on appcache manifests ?

     I'm using the appcache since it's adoption on major browsers and i 
think it lacks of a section to specify fallbacks with a specific timeout 
in order to avoid slow networks to damage user experience. To me this is 
the main issue still remaining in order to have the same experience than 
installed apps.

     It could take the form of a section like this (with a 2 seconds 
timeout) :
onlineres.html fallbackres.html

     Or maybe be done with the connection types :
onlineres.html fallbackres.html

     Is it planned to have some similar mechanism ?

     Best regards, Nicolas Froidure.
